The country’s National Institute of Statistics and Information (INEI) has recently released a report on the Peruvian economy’s performance in April 2014. The economy grew by 2.01%, which represents 57 months of consecutive growth. However, although there was an improvement in the gas, electricity and water sector (4.83%), the mining and hydrocarbon sector contracted by 6.10%. Construction industry growth also waned, falling by 8.89%.
